The success of all direct selling companies depends on the performance of their new independent representatives. What can companies do to help their reps off to a good start? One of the answers is a Fast Start Program.
While network marketing and party plan direct selling companies have much in common when it comes to Fast Start Programs, the words “Fast Start” mean something quite different.
Fast Start Programs for Network Marketing Companies
To network marketing companies, the words “Fast Start” mean “make a specific purchase.”
At the time of enrollment, network marketing companies may offer a Fast Start Product Pack upon which Fast Start compensation is paid. To be eligible to be paid Fast Start compensation, you must purchase a Fast Start Product Pack or generate enough personal sales volume from orders placed by you or your personally enrolled customers.
Fast Start Programs for Party Plan Companies
Because selling is a key behavior for party plan representatives, to party plan companies the words “Fast Start” mean “sell a specific amount.”
From the date of enrollment for a specific period of time, new representatives can accumulate sales volume upon which they can earn free products or other rewards. The upline may be paid differently on this first volume of new representatives.
Why A Fast Start?
Both party plan and network marketing companies know that representatives who meet their respective Fast Start Program goals will stay active longer and are more likely to recruit. Prominently promoting a Fast Start Program makes good business sense. So does training current representatives to introduce the Fast Start Program to prospective recruits with good follow-through.
The most successful direct selling companies have high rates of Fast Start Program participation.
